Watching a press conference with Putin and Hungarian president Orban, announcing a trade deal. Hadn't seen Orban before... strikes me as an old-fashioned Serious Man, belonging to a pre-TV political style. There aren't a lot of Serious Men in top positions now. The only one in the Western Hemisphere is Mujica of Uruguay.
I wonder if we're seeing the early stages of an Ottoman-Russian alliance? Turkey and Russia are already working together, and now Hungary moves into the circle. These countries went through a long period of artificial secularism, and now they're returning to a more natural monarchic nationalism with religious connections.
Reminded me of something I wrote about two years ago....
= = = = = START REPRINT:
During the Cold War, the world was divided between the Warsaw Pact and the NATO Pact, with some other Pacts adhering loosely to one side or the other.
Now we have two big Pacts again, and they're in the same general areas but not quite the same nations.
= = = = =
The more-or-less Western side (EU, UK, AUS, US) is firmly devoted to national suicide. Their governments are utterly delusional and totally insane. They act with remarkable efficiency to destroy their own people. They make nothing but imaginary counterfeit "money", to maximize the profits of Goldman Sachs.
These countries have a strong cultural bond. All are Post-Christian. All have replaced the biblical moral code with a vicious prissy-ass mincing-ass hatred of everything that works, a physical revulsion for everything that keeps civilization going, a screechy bloodthirsty compulsion to kill the entire human race.
We might call them the Suicide Pact, or the Wacked Pact.
= = = = =
The more-or-less Eastern side (Russia, China, Turkey, Korea, India) is firmly devoted to national success. Their governments are firmly grounded in reality, strictly sane, acting to advance their own economies and improve the situation of their OWN
people. They make actual things
These countries have no common cultural bond, and work together only when it serves each national interest. Their religious, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds are totally separate, but their moral codes are firm.
They have no patience with Die-Versity or Tolerance.
We might call them the Fact Pact.
= = = = = END REPRINT.
Now I'm seeing a historical connection between some of the Fact Pact. Also, I wouldn't put Korea in the Fact Pact as such, but it's running in the same direction.
